5 out of 5 eggsGreat Ol' Monitor

Pros: 21.6" sized screen with 16:10 ratio is just about the perfect size display for all-purpose PC use from web browsing, document editing, videos, and gaming.

Colors are vivid and and sharp, even with brightness turned down.

For a TN-based panel, the viewing angles are pretty good, although I've never really had this anywhere but straight in front of me.

16:10 display ratio gives that extra vertical room for more info per page and more to see when gaming.

Not a "hardcore" gamer, but never noticed any ghosting or lag playing FPS games.

Cons: The included stand was horrible -- I don't even remember if it could be articulated in any direction whatsoever. I replaced it with a Neo-Flex stand (height, rotate, and tilt options).

After 5 years, this monitor is still putting out a great display, but I think the power supply is failing, has the display blanks out when first powered on and needs to be cycled a few times before it warms up and functions normally.

Other Thoughts: Although this is a discontinued model, I thought I'd give it some props before I finally get it replaced and provide some feedback on it for anyone who might be considering purchasing this monitor used. As I search for and test out potential monitor replacements, I keep comparing them to this one!

5 out of 5 eggsAbsolutely Great

Pros: This LCD is beautiful. I had an HDMI Hanns G that was nice, but this thing is just better. Displays colors very nicely. Brightness is great and easy to adjust. Samsung has some nice quick options. Price is great for the quality.

Cons: Slight backlight bleeding, but not noticeable unless you are looking from certain angles. Huge CON is that I don't have two of these. They are worth it. Unless you want to pay quite a bit more.

Other Thoughts: I would definitely recommend this. 22" LCDs seem to be the best size to me. Not too big to fit on most desks and definitely not tooo small! Go ahead, grab one of these beauties. And get it from Newegg. As usual they had it to me two days after order was placed!

5 out of 5 eggsLove it

Pros: No dead pixels, great refresh rate, bright, sharp image quality. In all, i love it.

Cons: The stand its on could use some refinement such as height adjustment, but other than that- no cons.

Other Thoughts: I have used many lcd monitors, and this is by far my favorite one.

4 out of 5 eggs20 vs. 21.6

Pros: No dead Pixels. Good color reproduction. Bright enough to give you a headache, and adjustable enough to suit your taste. Most computer products are overpriced anyway, so this monitor falls within the average price range.

Cons: Viewing angle is good but not great. As with most most monitors, adjustments are an annoyance. Why can't these companies put some knobs on the side of the panel that turn with a detented click or something? Sometimes retro is just plain better.

Other Thoughts: I dual boot XP and Vista. I found it interesting that this monitor looked near perfect with XP out of the box. Albeit too bright. In Vista however, it took some tweaking, as it has that bluish look I've heard of. Removing the color profile helped, but I've adjusted the brightness for XP, and just left all else alone. Minor caveats really, I wouldn't be afraid to recommend this monitor to customers, but I think the 20 inch version is a better monitor out of the box.

5 out of 5 eggsGood for the money

Pros: For the money, it's a decent monitor... Almost 22" and widescreen and has good brightness and contrast.

Cons: The tilt is a little stiff, HOWEVER, THIS MONITOR DOES TILT. I had to take off the back cable cover to make sure the joint was hinged before I really started pushing on it. Sure enough, it DOES tilt.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Buy!

Pros: This monitor is outstanding. It works great as a gaming monitor and even works fairly well for photoshop and after effects. It isn't the cheapest, but it is better than the HannsG 21.6" I have that was cheaper.

Cons: Really has none.

Other Thoughts: Unless you want to spend twice as much, you are not going to find anything better. I would recommend this to anyone. Also, it works great in a triple monitor setup!!!

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Excellent straight out of the box, no dead pixels, easy setup and great picture quality.

Cons: None really, but if I had to pick one its the rather small view angle.

Other Thoughts: Great monitor for the price, I doubt I'll be replacing this any time soon.

4 out of 5 eggsBrilliant Colors

Pros: Large viewing area with fantastic colors. Very sleek design. GREAT resolution.

Cons: The only real cons are in the stand. You can not raise or lower, or tilt up or down; all you can do is swivel. It's not quite as bright as I had hoped, but that's no biggie.

Other Thoughts: My first one had 2 stuck pixels. I fixed one with JScreenFix, but the other one persisted. I am in the process of RMA-ing.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome monitor

Pros: I bought 2 of them and they both work fantastic, no troubles, great color, and they look slick.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Using 2 of these with an Nvidia 9800 GX2 , intel q600, and XP pro and they both work great.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat buy for the price

Pros: Great desktop space, no need for additional drivers, although there is a update for it. Easy OSD, High contrast ratio for the price, no dead pixels, fast response time

Cons: None, because of the price, if it was say $50 more then we would have a problem

Other Thoughts: The base swivel is a bit "sticky" it could be a bit more smoother, but saying that how many time do you move a LCD monitor?
